[Press Release] From writer Jason Latour (SOUTHERN BASTARDS, Spider-Gwen), artist Chris Brunner (SOUTHERN BASTARDS, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight), and colorist Rico Renzi (Spider-Gwen, Squirrel Girl) comes LOOSE ENDS, a four-issue miniseries from Image Comics this January.
LOOSE ENDS is a gritty, slow-cooked, Southern crime romance that follows a winding trail down Tobacco Road, through the war-torn streets of Baghdad, and into the bright lights and bloody gutters of South Florida.
“This comic is a love letter to the genre that shaped and molded us,” said Latour. “A coming-of-age road trip as crime fiction. A meditation on what it was like to grow up in a world before Obama, or Trump, in a country ready to lie, cheat, steal and kill for its future.”
“It may have begun in 2007 but this comic is how both SOUTHERN BASTARDS and Spider-Gwen came to be,” Latour added. “The full four issues finally hitting shelves makes me as excited as the day I saw my first published work. LOOSE ENDS is the main reason I’m making comics today.”
LOOSE ENDS #1 (Diamond code: NOV160548) hits stores Wednesday, January 25th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, January 2nd.
Select praise for LOOSE ENDS:
“LOOSE ENDS is something special. Polished yet raw. Vicious yet heartfelt. A crime comic that follows all the rules while still remaining fresh.” —Comic Book Resources
“Like Jason’s own art, the combo of Chris’ line work and Rico’s colors creates something completely different than what anyone else is doing. People constantly overuse and abuse the term ‘kinetic’ when describing art, but it really applies to these guys. Their work seems alive.” —Broken Frontier
